This has become the American way. There are countries that require more vacation time and the culture supports a work-life balance. That really isn’t supported much in the US. There are a few companies that work hard to offer this, but very few.
You can absolutely create a life of success where you’re not a cog in a machine. Consider jobs in areas that are interesting to you, that you like, or that you’re passionate about. You’ll be more successful that way, and definitely happier. You don’t have to accept a life of cookie-cutter expectations.
